As a Wolves fan, I can state unequivocally that Kurt Rambis is the best man for the job.

No he won't. Why leave a solid team hat is one scorer away, read D. Rose and or Carmelo, to go to a dumpster fire that only has three aging has-beens. He'll only get scapegoated there like Mike D. and the last two coaches before him. Stay where your team works within your system and management has acknowledged that they need to buy you a scorer.

Tom T. doesn't get along with Bulls Brass, apparently.

D'Antoni might not have been the answer, but with Kobe out and Steve Nash never having really played meaningful time for the Lakers, it's fair to say D'Antoni didn't have all of his weapons.  Not saying that if Kobe and Nash were playing regularly, they would be contenders, but they'd be a lot better than 27 wins.  Friction with Gasol and others sealed D'Antoni's fate.

Thibs works for a good owner in Reinsdorf, but Jim Buss has proved to be in over his head. The Bulls could seriously compete next year while the Lakers will be in rebuilding, Year 1.

The two of them would get in a fight to the death over who would be the one to kill Nick Young. I'm all for this.

Huh.  I wonder why 'witches' is in the More: keywords?

There is talk the Lakers would be willing to trade heavy for him, and the friction between Bulls brass and Thibs is pretty bad. Thibs has also been dropping a ton of back-handed comments to the press that seem aimed at the higher-ups. ("I'm just trying to do things like Phil" is my personal favorite)

The whole notion is so insane, it just might be plausible.

//Thibs would be a fool to go there.
///Bulls would be bigger fools to let him.

For all the talk about Lakers management, there was always friction with Phil too back in their glory days and why he left.

Doesn't surprise me.

Bye.

I'm pretty sure the Bulls released a statement today assuring the other teams that they have no intention of giving anyone a chance to lure him away.

They need to finish rebuilding, then hire someone like Thibs.

I'm not saying he's going or anything, but I will say that the Bulls have never really been "up front" or "honest" with their motives.

This.  Right here.  "Dumpster fire" is a very apt description of the Lakers right now.  Aging egotistical stars, no support, a panicking front office, and an angry fan base.  They have a long, long road to recovery.  Two to four really hard years where they need to shed their stars, further piss off their fan base, and rebuild from square one.  And that's just to get them to the point where maybe they can sneak into the playoffs as a young team.

I see no reason to think this is just a minor "down" year, and they'll be right back in the thick.  Everything points to this being an extended drought.

Thibs is a great coach and I hope he stays on board for a LONG time. The only thing I never understood was why he liked Deng so much. Thibs seems way too butthurt over that trade.

Deng has to be one of the most overrated players in the league. Deng can't create his own shot like real stars can. The only reason he got his 1st All-Star consideration was because Rose commanded  everyone's attention defensively which left Deng with so many easy shots. His defense isn't bad, but he's never locking down guys for a game. His playoff numbers have consistently decreased over the years, as well. Hell, this is all true if he's somehow not injured like he is a lot of the time.


/Can you tell I am happy the Bulls are trying to move forward from Deng?

HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH


So how long will that work out?
I can see how it now.

Tom:  Mr. Bryant, I need you to play defense on every possession. Yes all of them. Could you also maybe try to pass the ball even when it won't result in an obvious assist?

Kobe: Your fired

Thibideau was the secret to Doc's success.
